The Revenge of Winston Smith

It is a shame that Alan Moore has chosen this moment to distance himself so far from Hollywood and to so publicly disavow this film, because V for Vendetta is the most faithful, respectful, and successful adaptation his work has had to date. Andy and Larry, I finally forgive you for the Matrix Revolutions. And while my absolution matters little, I suspect that millions of other filmgoers will too. Yes, the Wachowski brothers have returned to smart and daring movie making. Surprisingly light on action. Heavy on complex dialogue and plot. A truly uncompromising film. Everyone should see it.
